Dam Square houses the royal palace apparently but there is nothing much in the square which advertises this fact or I didn't see it. To me it was just the centre of the shopping area, you can go in any direction and find shops. It...More
It is where it happens in AMS. You need to make it a spot on your list. You can go any direction from the Square and see great shops, restaurants and cafes. I have a favorite spot on the square to sit and drink a...More
Dam Square was pretty cool during the run up to the New Year and is a good spot to navigate from. The royal palace overlooks the square with the likes of Madam Tussaud as well. The square itself is large. Not many bars around it.

Nothing out of this world. But you will have to visit. It was lovely in Christmas time with all the lights and the enormous Christmas tree. Just be careful you are not run over by the tram or a bicycle 😂
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
